she would like to run for office. after all, she says, what better way to change the world. and that's it for today. have a great week. we will see you next time on fox news sunday. >> this is the fox report, and tonight, bracing for the kind of rain storm that changes landscapes and lives. california on the brink of a weather nightmare. another day, another dollar that you earned could soon be lost, gone to uncle sam. does this sound like the people who work for you are any closer to hammering out a deal before we all go over the so-called fiscal cliff? >> i think we're going over the cliff. >> harris: a dire prediction about the reality which could hit us all.
4:01 pm
and in this, from the man picked to represent the white house in all this. >> i think we have a very good chance for coming together on agreement. >> is that just wishful thinking or is there something going on behind the scenes that we don't know about? tonight, getting a handle on where we really stand in the showdown over taxes and spending cuts. and, one of the busiest forces in the world is in los angeles and there's a good chance something in your home once passed through here. now, union workers hitting picket lines, refusing to work until they get what they want. fox reports. the potential economic fallout on the rest of us from a union fighting to survive. and some less than bright criminals caught on tape. they're trying to steal gas from a golf course, but something they didn't plan on keeps them from make ago fast get away. the video you just have to see. i'm harris falkner, tonight,
4:02 pm
both republicans and democrats digging in deep for what could be a long fight that ends in a self-induced economic calamity. the fiscal cliff now less than a month away. and falling off the cliff could spell trouble in the form of higher taxes, higher unemployment and recession, so analysts tell us. as we approach the edge, a compromise appear object out of reach. and timothy geithner headed up negotiations for the obama administration says the deal will be hard to come by without tax hikes for higher income americans and republican leaders led by house speaker john boehner calling the president's proposal essentially a waste of time. >> i was flabbergasted. >> we've the got seven weeks between election day and the end of the year, and three of those weeks have been wasted. >> steve centanni kicks off our college tonight from washington d.c. steve, where exactly do we stand tonight? >> well, harris, democrats are hoping republicans to raise
4:03 pm
taxes on the wealthy and the republicans are accusing the white house of wasting time. and saying that he didn't have a serious proposal when he reintroduced a plan to reduce 4 trillion dollars. >> the president asking for 1.6 trillion dollars worth of new revenue over ten years, twice as much as he's been asking for in public. his system spending in here that exceeded the amount of new cuts that he was willing to consider. it was not a serious offer. >> but so far it's the only white house offer on the table, a starting point for further negotiations, one would assume, harris? >> not to sound pessimistic, but it's a fact, even if he reached a deal tonight, it would tough to meet that deadline by the end of the year, because there's red tape profit to deal with. >> that's right, it takes time and time to get the legislation drafted and passed and to get it scored by the congressional budget office to
4:04 pm
determine the real cost and savings, but the white house remains optimistic and treasury secretary geithner says raising taxes on the wealthy and specific cuts and he does see movement among republicans. >> you've heard that for the first time, i think, in two decades now acknowledge they're willing to have revenues go up as part of the balanced plan. that's a good first step, but they have to tell us what they're willing to do on rates and revenues, very hard for republicans, we understand that, but there's no way through this without that. >> meantime, house minority leader nancy pelosi is putting out a statement urging speaker boehner to put up for a vote. >> harris: now a question, what are the lawmakers not telling us what happens. the short answer the retirement and 401(k) funds are taking a beating. you along with wall street investors should be watching what happens in d.c.
4:05 pm
if they don't get it done or wait until the last seconds to get one. it costs you money and it's already happening. here is brenda buttner, senior business anchor of bulls and bears. >> harris, wall street watching washington hoping we don't fall off the fiscal cliff. the fear we might could mean a fall in your savings. this, even though december is a month you usually see gains, often more than okay for your 401(k), the s&p 500 a big part of many retirement accounts, has gone up 16 in the past 20 years during this month. but now, investors are scared a plunge over the cliff could send the economy falling back into recession. those worries sent stocks falling. the s & p down two straight weeks after the election, even though it has made up four of the 5.3% loss, whenever there was a glimmer of a hope of a deal, headed up. and the fallout from the fiscal cliff could put even more pressure on unemployed americans, or those just trying to keep up with house
4:06 pm
payments. except more ups and downs for your investments ahead, but not so much because of big numbers out this week, among them, an important reading on manufacturing tomorrow, and then, what is often the biggest market mover of any month, the jobs report. november's release before the bell on friday. the cliff will likely overshadow even that. and with tax increases looming on capital gains and dividends, investors may start selling before the end of the year to get the better deal if there is no deal. that means, december may not live up to its history of heading higher and leave many questions about what the new year will mean for your bottom line. harris, back to you. >> brenda, thank you very much. >> and a fox news weather alert. people in parts of northern california and the pacific northwest dealing with dangerous amounts of rain. las of storms batthering the same region for days now, causing flooding. well, look at this. and raising fears now of
4:07 pm
mudslides, and dominic di-natale is live for us in petaluma, california and dominic, you're kind of in a lull right now, really a chance for people to brace for the next round and we know it's coming. >> absolutely. it will be round four, round three and the rain lashed down all nights into the earlier morning. by dawn, it was clear skies at the moment and that's because most of the rain headed south. a big concern, most of all was the city of napa, where back in 2005 it had such bad floods they were bracing themselves for more again. and the river is expect today peak around about now and this time they'll do better than they did in 2005. take a listen. >> because of the history of flooding in napa, we have a really good idea of where the water will come out first. we know there's some certain points so we can plan in advance, at this moment, if the projections of the
4:08 pm
rainfall totals are accurate, we're probably looking at street flooding, intersections being flooded and nothing terribly serious, and i say that with a caveat. >> and now, that's probably why he does take the caveat and these are the three rivers on the brink at the moment. obviously, the napa river there, further out to the west, we've got the russian river and, but also of concern has been the trucky river which flows from nevada through to california. and however, we've just actually learned from the national weather service, there's a flood warning there and it's going to be lifted and we saw it crested at 4 p.m. and that's due to subside toward midnight and that's actually a relief because it was expected over its banks. >> harris: that lift is eight minutes old, new and breaking information there, and noi that area pretty well, lots of vineyards there and the
4:09 pm
economy is bracing what, will happen to the dollar we've seen early damage from the downed power lines and the winds, now with the water coming, what are people doing? >> reporter: well, we've seen a bit of that in sacramento, cars were struggling, actually to get through the rain there, but people to some extent taking a philosophical attitude. take a listen to one resident, harris. >> it will be three to four high across the front of the garage doors, same thing on the back, and then just weight down tarps over the wood and hopefully the water will go up and around it rather than underneath. the river comes over the banks, we're used to it. like we've gone through. >> reporter: quite an easy going attitude there, but a lot of people are going to be extremely upset and the cost of damage to people has not been estimated at this point. you know, the deluge of last night was amounted to-- the rain that was actually dropped in the the previous two storms so clearly a the lot of people are going to be hit by this. we'll know over the next few
4:10 pm
days how bad it's really going to be. but now the rain has hit the rivers and cull verts and headed towards them, harris. >> harris: dominic di-natale, thank you very much. behind all of those storms is an unusual weather pattern, it's called an atmospheric river. i mentioned that last night and we'll press in and dig in deeper, on the map see the green yellow line from the pacific to california that's carrying the waves and waves of moisture and meteorologist maria molina is in our fox extreme weather center. maria, do we need to at atmospheric river to our vocabulary or a fluke? >> we do tend to see sochlt storms now and then, harris. and basically as you saw in that picture, a line of storms lined up in towards the west coast and they've happened in the past and sometimes we call them a pineapple express because the storms can line up from hawaii and impact portions of the west coast. so, again, just a lo the of moisture with the the storms and you get to see so many of them in a row and that's why we do tend to see flooding
4:11 pm
when we get these kind of patterns, setting up impacting portions of the west coast and while some flood warnings or flash flood warnings have been allowed to expire, from southwestern portions of california and southwestern portions of oregon, the good news we're expecting a lull, as far as any rainfall goes until monday. it will kick off the work week. as we head into tuesday we'll actually see another storm start to impact northern california and the pacific northwest so again we're expecting more moisture and the ground is already saturated from all of the storms impacting the west coast through the work week. and 50, to 70 miles per hour across the northern rockies and portions of california and a number of wind warnings and also some wind advisories in effect out here because of the stormy weather pattern that's in place. as we take a look at the future radar, basically the next 48 hours, a bit of a lull in monday, as far as rainfall through california and the next system arrives producing heavy rain across many of the same areas and already had to
4:12 pm
deal with it and as we head into some of the higher elevations you're talking snow for the northern rockies and also the cascades across parts of washington and oregon. right now, again, most of it's wrapping up. that's good news, seattle, portland dealing with showers, but northern california drying out little bit. as we head eastbound, two more things. the northeast areas of showers especially across new england and headed to the plains, very warm temperatures in the plains, 80 over in dallas and for tomorrow, that's going to be the story again, so we're going to be looking at basically that continuing warmth across places in the plains, 81 will be the high tomorrow in dallas. >> harris: maria molina, thank you very much. and right now, police are trying to unravel a bizarre scene happening outside a home. the bodies of four people found facedown in the yard. we do know the house is on a street lined with other homes, schools, places of worship, but neighbors say is a safe place. we'll bring you what we're
